I'm not going to go into great detail but during the last 6 years I have been under the care of LCFT, both as an inpatient and outpatient.
I have had mixed experiences but my opinion gives me particular concerns in regards to:
- treatment of people diagnosed (perhaps incorrectly) with borderline personality disorder.
- the overuse of the above disorder and what seems to be a lack of choice in treatment
- the crisis team - and the way that I believe they can't deal with a crisis
- on call psychiatrists and psychiatric liaison teams who have seemed to be to be narrow minded, unsympathetic and judgemental.
I know the trust has improved many of it's services but as I have written - it still has a long way to go on the above.
